Retired astronauts Charlie Duke ’53S and Farragut parent Nicole Stott, were guest speakers at Starmus in Zurich in July. Starmus is a global festival bringing together astronauts, scientists, and artists to enhance science exploration and communication. The festival celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 with astronaut Buzz Aldrin. Duke opened the festival and shared his journey as Capcom on Apollo 11 and his moon landing with Apollo 16. Stott shared the Space for Art Foundation and the connection of space, art and healing. To top off the Starmus Queen’s legendary guitarist and PhD astrophysicist, Brian May performed We Are The Champions. Cadet Roman Stott ’21 got to experience this amazing event with the trailblazers of space, science, and music.
